You will have to dig deep for this 1951 VW Split Screen Camper Van on eBay – and for good reason.
This is a rarely seen pre-1955 split screen bus, also known as the ‘Barn Door’ due to the large rear engine hatch. This one actually dates back to 195q, said to be one of the oldest in the UK and with all the documentation to back that up.
The bus has been ‘meticulously restored and repainted’ with original features still in place, such as the bolt on high hinge door mirrors, separate locking cargo door handle, original dash pod & speedo, piano hinge quarter lights and ribbed front bumper .
It uses a reconditioned 1600TP motor and has new 12V electrics along with fresh upholstery throughout including original style cloth headliner and front bench seat. All of the seating folds down to make a ‘reasonably sized’ sleeping arrangement too.
Fancy it? If you do, you will need around £59,995 to your name. More images and details on the listing.
